Patrick Murphy Celebrates 33rd Anniversary Of Roe v. Wade
Patrick Murphy, Iraq War Veteran and Democratic Congressional candidate in Pennsylvania's 8th District, today released this
statement celebrating the anniversary of the decision in Roe v. Wade:
"Thirty-three years ago, the Supreme Court gave women the right to make personal medical decisions between themselves and their doctors. Roe v. Wade gave women a fundamental right to privacy, and now more than ever, we need to protect that right. I taught constitutional law at West Point, and I understand that every woman has a fundamental right to privacy. When I'm elected to Congress, I will aggressively fight to protect a woman's right to choose."
